The One to Count On...

Top Girls Teams in LHC Square off in Pella Tonight

Posted: Tuesday, January 5th, 2010 at 6:30 am

The two top girls basketball teams in the Little Hawkeye Conference go head-to-head tonight, as Pella hosts Knoxville. Both teams are undefeated in the LHC, and Pella Head Coach Jerod Garland says he expects a close ball game that could come down to conditioning.

“We want to be the team that is fresher in the fourth quarter. Hopefully our depth can help a little bit with that,” says Garland. “We really feel like the final eight minutes of the game are going to decide it [the outcome], so we’re hoping to stick around and then hopefully hit some shots late.”

Coverage of tonight’s game will be broadcast on 92.1 fm KRLS with Jamie Brockman and Randy Sikkema live from Pella High School, starting at 6:00 p.m.
